darkDARK (feat. Haley Bonar) - Restless
Split between Los Angeles and Austin, production duo darkDARK, comprised of Genevieve Vincent and Chris James, first made their mark on scene late last year with the release of their first two singles, "Moments" and "Fake It", both of which garnered praise from a handful of tastemaking music blogs but today they return with what could very well be considered as their most impressive track to date, a soaring electro-pop gem called "Restless", which features guest vocalist Haley Bonar and also serves as the latest track to be lifted from their forthcoming debut EP, Heathered, slated to drop on February 24th.
"I wanted to tell a story along the lines of two young people who take the late train home from an insane night out and realize that they actually love each other and want to commit to one another, despite their restless pasts," Bonar told NPR's All Songs Considered, who premiered the song earlier today. "We wanted the beginning of the song to sound simple, like moonlight, when it starts off. But as the lyrics unfold, it breaks into this beat, opens up and really takes you somewhere unreal, heated and impulsive."
